Birthday Vacation…

My heart goes out to all those affected by the brutal tornado in Oklahoma. It is such a tragedy and may all those who are missing be reunited with their family and loved ones. To help, you can make a donation through Red Cross here.

I am traveling across the pond later this evening for a short birthday vacation and will try to update my blog if possible. Things don’t always go as planned as my internet connection during my trip back to KL was horrible to say the least but here’s to hoping that things will work out! Feel free to follow me on Twitter for mini updates of my trip. 🙂

I’ll be playing with my new camera, the Olympus OM-D EM5 on this trip and will hopefully be able to get some good shots. Here are some of my essentials for today as I make the trip across the pond.

Hope the rest of your week goes well and for those in the U.S., have a great Memorial Day weekend! Be safe! 🙂

 

BookBook Laptop Sleeve

I have previously wrote about getting a Marc by Marc Jacobs laptop sleeve here but as soon as I saw the BookBook laptop sleeve, I knew I had to have it! The BookBook laptop sleeve is actually made to fit Apple Macbooks but I am NOT a fan of anything Apple and do not own any of their products. Perhaps hard to believe in this day and age, but I am very much Apple resistant! I digress from the topic but the BookBook laptop sleeve actually fits my Lenovo X300 quite snugly.

BookBook Laptop Sleeve $79.90

The BookBook laptop sleeve is an ingenius way to disguise a laptop in a book case and I absolutely love it for that! It comes in red and black and I purchased the red (obviously!). It is sturdy and it has been holding up pretty well. You can purchase one here. Prices vary depending on the size of the sleeve: $79.90 for 13″ and $99.90 for 15″.

Lemming for …

I have been really good on my self-imposed shopping ban. I have not bought a single fashion item since March 20 (I just checked my credit card statements)! I have been spending on birthdays for my friends as I do not celebrate Xmas and am thus more generous with birthdays.

Granted, I did splurged and bought a brand a spankin’ brand new phone the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, an upgrade in mid-April.

I had previously been using my regular candy bar Sony Ericsson since August 2007. The phone still works just fine but I just wanted a new phone. The inner geek in me just had to have it! Heh.

Temptations continue to abound and here is one, the Marc by Marc Jacobs Flash Kelsey bag in black

My current messenger/sling bag isn’t in such a good shape thanks to color transfer from my jeans. It was an 2005 Xmas gift from my beloved twin cousin and I am thinking an upgrade is in order? From fabric to leather and of course from Esprit to Marc by Marc! Hee.

I definitely like the Flash Kelsey for the dual function of being a cross-body bag and a hobo just by adjusting or rather looping up the strap. The zippers also give an edgy vibe to this casual bag which I absolutely adore. The retail price of $358 however leaves me dreaming for one as the scrooge in me just will not allow me to purchase this bag full price. Maybe a 25% discount or more will have me pulling the trigger on this baby. Until then, it shall remain as a lemming.
